How sustainable practices are adopted by the maritime event "Sail de Ruyter" in Vlissingen

Samenvatting

Events have been part of human civilization since the very beginning. They took place to mark the change of
a season, to present new leaders or to celebrate religious rituals. Also births and deaths were and still are
accompanied by such events. In our modern world some events or parties have become gigantic and thus
more complex (Ferdinand & Kitchin, 2012).
Events, which take place for just two to four days, normally consume big amounts of resources, like energy
and fresh water. In addition to that, they are producing much waste. Also a substantial amount of energy is
required for transportation of people and goods, creating CO2 and other emissions.
Sail de Ruyter is an open-air event and so does not take place in, for example a congress hall. Thus the
transition is easier: protect the sea, which is right in front of you. Equally important to creating awareness is
aiming to organise such an event in a sustainable way.
Future events organised in Zeeland as well as maritime events worldwide could learn from Sail de Ruyter
how sustainability can be implemented. Also Vlissingen Maritiem could learn from this experience and
improve their sustainability performance for any future maritime event.
